Buns ready in just a few steps

Maple and walnut cinnamon buns

The recipe is disarmingly simple and requires few ingredients: pizza dough, maple sugar, walnuts (always delicious in dessert recipes), cinnamon and butter.

The first step is to melt some of the butter and maple sugar.

This mixture, to which we add part of the walnuts, is then poured into a mold.

The second step is to roll out the pizza dough to form a rectangle on which we spread another mixture of maple sugar and walnuts.

Next, you just need to roll up the dough to form a roll, which is then cut into about fifteen pieces.

Each piece is placed in the mold on top of the mixture of melted butter and maple sugar before baking.

This results in soft bun with an absolutely delicious maple walnut filling.

These rolls will be a success served for brunch, with a Disaronno fizz or a mimosa, or for dessert.

How long do maple walnut rolls keep?

These buns are best eaten the same day but will keep for a few days.

It’s best to reheat them for a few minutes in the oven, at 350F, before eating.

Do the buns freeze? Indeed!

To thaw them, just put them in the oven at 350F.
